Make Every Tuesday Count

Did the year-end sneak up on you? Are you feeling pressure to meet your 2015 goals before 2016 hits you square in the face? It’s never too late to re-evaluate, revamp, and recharge. Even if you are ahead of the plan, don’t coast into the New Year – move into 2016 full speed ahead.

Every Tuesday – one week at a time:

December 8th

Review the initial plan

  • What were your goals in regards to marketing, new clients, increased production, increased staff, additional technology, etc.?
  • In review, were they attainable and reasonable goals? Or not?

Evaluate your progress to-date

  • Were there unexpected, but significant developments that stalled your plan?
  • What could/should you have done differently?
  • What attitudes and actions moved you forward and which ones created roadblocks?
  • This is not a time to beat yourself up – that only hinders the next step. It’s a time to be honest and learn – to take advantage of 2015 hindsight for 2016 planning.

Adjust your goals

  • If you want to reach the finish line, you might need to revise the road map.
  • Narrow your focus – what really matters?
  • What will make the biggest difference?
  • What will keep you most on track as you enter 2016?

December 15th

Replace your battery – rejuvenate company passion – harness the power of your team

  • Begin at the top, of course, but involve everyone.
  • Create a fresh perspective.
  • Provide motivation to finish the year at top performance.
  • Take time to look back and see how far you’ve traveled and what you’ve accomplished – it’s the best motivator for moving forward.

December 22nd

Connect with the company team

  • Seek their insight and ideas for 2016.
  • Evaluate their strengths: Use each employee in the position that fits them best – don’t put your “people person” in the back crunching numbers.
  • Plan for new hires: Go for quality – it may cost more initially, but in the end it saves time and expense.

Take care of your team – they are your best asset.

  • Bring on the praises – say thanks in tangible ways.
  • Feed them – if they have to “stay late” a few times, food always helps.
  • Provide support for the team – take advantage of temporary staffing.

December 29th

The black and white checkered flag

  • Cross the finish line – you did it!
  • Celebrate with the team.
  • Give credit where credit is due – plus a little.
  • Fill the gas tanks and greet 2016 with a smile!
